For the past 20 years the special school ‘Los Rosales’ in Mostar has taken part in Summer Camps in various scenic coasts in Italy and Croatia. The most recent location has been the wonderful Centre MARE in Rovinj.  The children and their primary carers are joined by volunteers from around the world who have skills in creative music making and other activities. It is a week full of joy and laughter and a valuable holiday for the families.

Each day takes the form of two creative participant-lead creative workshops where songs are written on a theme. The children and volunteers show their work at the end of the camp in an informal concert which is attended by locals and friends and family.

These camps are invaluable for the children as they give them a creative outlet in a beautiful setting alongside plenty of outdoor activities such as swimming and football. Music is the perfect way to communicate non-verbally and to express themselves and Centre MARE is the perfect setting!
